Hi, I'm Verleen and new here. I searched the site and really don't know where to post this.
I have post polio syndrome and many neurons for my back muscles are permanently gone. As a result, my back get very fatigues, weak and painful. The only thing that helps is to recline and rest the muscles. This problem has gotten worse since my triple by-pass surgery in March. My back fatigued out over simple trips to the bathroom for example. I've checked the rehabilitation hospital in the area and they do not offer anything for spinal rehab. All they have is the treaditonal PT, OT, etc and related equipment such as treadmills, bikes, etc. To use this equipment, a person has to have a functioning back. They just don't get it.
I am looking for a program that will strengthen and preserve the muscles/neurons that I have. Overuse destroys my neurons. Has anyone had a similar problem and found a solution? I would like to be able to do more than I can now. Thank you. Verleen
